Friday night, my friend, Linda Grossman, World’s Greatest Realtor, invited me to a fun concert at the Guitar Sanctuary in Stonebridge. A nice ending to a very busy day.

4/27/18 – Andy Timmons & Jennifer Batten

The Guitar Sanctuary presented an evening of Virtuoso Guitar with Andy Timmons, Jennifer Batten, and friends at The Sanctuary Music & Events Center on Friday

Today was a beautiful day. I went out and walked two hours this afternoon. The neighborhood was having a sub-division garage sale. I checked put a few, but I only found one glass vase for a dollar. Will power.

Then, off to the Square to check out the art show at The Cove. My friend, Don Simmons, had a one man show, displaying his amazing photography. Don has the most amazing and instinctive eye for detail, color, composition, and nostalgia.

Then, another fun music venue this evening on the Square at Cadillac Pizza Pub. Maylee and the Mayor were rockin’ the house. Our own Mayor of McKinney, George Fuller, is part of an awesome rock ‘n roll band that performs at many local venues. Maylee has a combination voice of Janice Joplin, sprinkled with Tina Turner, and an angelic gospel singer.

Mckinney certainly rocks…and rolls.

Yesterday was a fun day. We had our birthday party for Miss Bonnie at Towne Creek, then afterwards, I met some friends at MPAC, McKinney Performing Arts Center. We attended the free concert with Maylee and the Mayor. When we arrived, there were free t-shirts at each seat promoting the voteyourmainstreet.org. We each received a raffle ticket for prizes provided by local merchants, restaurants, and services.


Well, to make a long story short, when they called 137, for the best prize of all, it was ME! Yay! It was called the Romance Package. A night at the romantic Grand Hotel, complete four course dinner for two at Rick’s Chop House, (the finest and my favorite restaurant in town) a bottle of champagne and a half dozen chocolate covered strawberries. Cool! My lucky day. My neighbors won the salsa/barbecue sauce basket and offered to trade. Nah!


It was a great concert. Maylee is an awesome singer and George Fuller, our own guitar slinging Mayor, was accompanied by John Christopher Davis. They all rocked the house. My ears are still ringing.
